Pure Data (or Pd) is a free + open source, real-time graphical
programming environment for audio, video, and graphical processing.
Because all of these types of media are handled as data in the program,
many fascinating opportunities for cross-synthesis between them exist.
Pd is commonly used for live music performance, VeeJaying, sound effects
composition, interfacing with sensors, cameras and robots or even
interacting with websites.
A book sprint brings together a group of writers, editors and artists to
produce a published book within several days. This sprint will combine a
workshop within it, where new users will learn to create basic patches
in Pd, documenting them along the way for the FLOSS Manual. This is an
exciting opportunity both to acquire new skills as well as share them
with others in the form of a book!
This sprint is a long-distance collaboration between FLOSS Manuals, the
Berlin Pure Data users group and ITP/Tisch School of the Arts, New York.
Please bring your own laptop with Pure Data Extended installed. The
workshop is free, with the expectation that participants will contribute
to the FLOSS Manual.
